Who knew we had so much “stuff” and as Steve would say, “who knew Jen and Lila had so much stuff", and he’s right.
Honestly, I knew we had stuff, but as we’re getting the house ready to rent it’s really hit me on how much we have and how much stress it adds to my life. I feel I am constantly picking up and moving things from one place to another, with no end in site.
Our garage sale, donation, and gift pile has grown tremendously over the last 3 months and I can honestly tell you, there’s not one thing I miss so far. Not one thing.
I’m still looking for items to pass along and am looking forward to life in the trailer with a minimal amount of possessions to clutter our days.
We are still sorting, sifting, and dispersing, and not all is going, I have our sentimental items, a few things from my mom, special gifts from friends, and pictures, I’m not ready to let the pictures go.
I want my life full of memories, not a life full of tangibles.
